    I worked at Gemmiti Model Art part-time

    Pros

    Model makers have the opportunity to work in a well equipped shop and build models for impressive local and international projects.

    Cons

    Very hostile and abusive work environment. One of the biggest issues is that the company director, Lisa Gemmiti, agrees to an unmanageable amount of projects with several clients in a very limited time frame. Consequently, her model makers have to work lots of overtime and even all-nighters, while being threatened to receive a pay cut if the project will not be finished in time.

    Advice to Management

    Please, treat your employees with more respect and gratitude for their hard work, while taking responsibility for your own mistakes. This could be a fabulous place to work, there is so much potential, but an improvement in management is absolutely necessary.

    I have been working at Gemmiti Model Art full-time for more than a year

    Cons

    The cons of this job are quite simple, working here doesn't work out if: 1. You treat the work like a hobby and not interested in a fast pace moving environment. 2. You're afraid of deadlines and at times high stress when there is lots of work to be done. 3. You don't like to be on your feet all day. 4. If you can't be trusted to work independently without a manager constantly standing over your shoulder. 5. If...

    I have been working at Gemmiti Model Art

    Pros

    Clear communication on needs and wants. Has a great understating of what the job entails.

    Cons

    You better really know your business. If you have have glaring weaknesses they're going to be exposed. So be prepared to say and admit you don't know something. Don't hide it. Quality is demanded. And if you admit it you'll get help.
